Without a doubt, the pace of adopting anaerobic digestion to process a wider variety of organic waste streams is picking up in North America. The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh broke ground in mid-September on a facility that will digest campus dining hall residuals with municipal yard trimmings. In Iowa, a draft construction permit for a planned cattle confinement operation in Scott County was issued to Glenora Feed Lot in early October, paving the way for installation of the first digester system on a CAFO in that state. And in Ontario, a septage treatment digester is starting up, providing a much-needed alternative to land application of that material. Construction of the US' first commercial-scale dry fermentation anaerobic digester got underway last month on the campus of the University of Wisconsin in Oshkosh. The project is being funded in part with a grant from Alliant Energy's "Farm Anaerobic Digester Cash-Back Reward."
